Technology is becoming increasingly important in today's learning environments and a local district is looking to keep their classrooms at the top in terms of the latest in what students are using.
To make sure they are keeping up, Heyworth Schools have a technology committee that is presently making sure the technology in their classrooms is working to meet the needs of their students.
That's Superintendent of Heyworth Schools Lisa Taylor. Technology, especially classroom technology is not cheap. She indicates they do have options to fund this project, however notes, it will likely have to be phased in over time.
Taylor says the decision they face in this initiative is personal computers or laptops. She feels the industry is becoming more mobile and that is what a lot of employers are using in today's world and their goals are to make students real-world ready so that may mean a shift to a laptop-driven initiative.
